Joe, just another message to let you know I am thinking of you and your family. You are missed and will not be forgotten. You are a true American hero.

Your father and my father were best friends for many years and I will never forget the time they, you, and I fishing down in Lawrence Harbor when we were young. You were a year or 2 ahead of me in HS, I was in the same grade as Greg. I am so proud to have known you and you always wore your uniform proudly even back in ROTC in HS. Rest in Peace. With all love from the Perry Family (father George Perry).

I flew with Joe in VP-8 and interacted with him a lot on the aircraft. I am an Electronics Tech and had to repair the equipment before and during flights. I remember Joe as one of those rare operators who took the time to learn about their equipment and could effectively troubleshoot it before I was called in to help. My memories of him are of a moral, hardworking, and devoted team player. He should have been a Chief Petty Officer and teaching the young sailors how to be more like him. I think of him from time to time and wonder why it is that people like Joe are taken from us when we need more like him around, rather than less. There are many submarine skippers from Joe's time as an ASW operator that may not know his name, but they sure got to see his work! Good job, Joe. We will see you later.

I cannot believe all the things people have written about my son Joseph. Even though it has been over nine years since it happened, it does not get better. Living near N.Y., and now maybe the trial coming so close, it is on the news again.

When I was on board the USS GEORGE WASHINGTON CVN-73, I had the honor of serving and berthing with Joe. The thing that I remember the most about Joe was his huge smile and heart. It seemed that he always presented a smile and a positive attitude toward his shipmates and life in general. He was a true friend and shipmate. He is with GOD, and he continues to smile down upon us. God bless Joe and his family.

Joe, I did not know you, but I went to the same high school as you, and my sister attended there around the same time as you. Thank you so much for devoting your life to serving our country. I am so sorry that you lost your life in doing so, but I am proud to have walked the same halls you did at Becton. God bless you, and watch over all of us until we meet again in heaven.

We miss Joe and hope that our remembrance of him helps to honor his passing. Terri, we are thinking of you today.

Rest in peace, Joseph. We are all so proud of you.

A day does not go by that I do not think about Joe. I know that his family misses him terribly and I pray for them daily. All those who ever met him are better persons for having known him. I wear his memorial bracelet and get asked about it often. His memory will always live on.

A prayerful remembrance on this 5th Anniversary of that tragic day when I participated in the notification of the fact that Aviation Warfare Systems Officer First Class, John Jospeh Pycior, USN, was "duty station unknown". May God grant him eternal rest and my the faith of his family be a source of consolation.

It might be good to here from someone inside the family. I was his nephew who attended most, if not, all memorial services. he was the smartest man I ever knew. I would like to thank the previous commentors for keeping my family in your prayers. If you don't know, Terri Kaiser, his high school sweetheart married him and she has two wonderful children, both of Joe's, Joseph John III and Robbie. It hurts me a little to write because I feel all of the memories coming back to me. Two of them being the time that he yelled at me at Teterboro Airport when I was 5 because I got out of the car without letting him know and the fact that he would always win Jeopardy without a fight. You can never forget a man that built LEGO atructures and played practical jokes in his mid 30s. He was a great man who will never be forgotten.

P.S. 8th Street in Carlstadt, New Jersey was renamed Joseph Pycior Jr. Way in 2002. If you don't know, that was the street he grew up on.

Joe is remembered by his smile and eagerness to help others while we were classmates at The Citadel. He enjoyed sailing at the yacht basin. He always had kind words to say about others. Once our company commander sent Joe back to his room to change out of his bright orange soccer sox since they "stood out" with our blue shorts and white tee shirts. Joe was the first to admit they weren't sylish, but he was going to wear them just to tick off the upper classmen. It was funny Joe! And thanks for all the laughter and support you gave the 84 C Company knobs.

Post your memorial thoughts:

Share your feelings and memories of grief and sadness concerning the 9-11-2001 attack, or of positive memories.  If you knew this person, help us to build a small 'bio' of the person and share with us something about his/her life:

  • what kind of person he/she was, 
  • what nice points you remember about him/her, 
  • what kind of relationship you had with him/her, 
  • what you two perhaps did together, 
  • what he/she meant to you, 
  • or other things about him/her might be especially encouraging for other people.

This web site is intended solely as a means of allowing all of us to express our grief and sympathy in behalf of the people who lost their lives, and also our love and compassion towards those who lost loved ones and friends in the 9/11/01 tragedy. The site is strictly for memorial mentions of those who passed away in the tragedy, not of other people who have passed away.

Our hearts are very touched with concern in behalf of those people, and it is to them that we dedicate this web site. It is not our intent to venture into the realms of WHO should face judgement, to take responsibility for those terrible events, because we have no way of knowing for sure who all might fall into that category. Therefore, any letters or notes written passing judgment upon any person or group will not be published on this site. We do NOT want this site to be a base for expressions of hatred, but only for expressions of LOVE!

Moreover, 9-11Heroes.us reserves the right to choose which comments to post and also to edit the comments for spelling, punctuation, grammar, or edit comments that are unkind or offensive in some manner.
